LAYLA’S CHANCE by Mika Jolie
Release Date: April 11th
Oh my goodness, I loved this story so much. I don’t generally read short stories, as I often find the plots are not developed enough for my personal taste but the blurb intrigued me and so I downloaded it. Let me tell you, that was a great decision. A short story it may be, but in my opinion it reads like a full length book. I’m writing this review with a silly, contented smile on my face, just thinking about these characters.
Having had her plans for her career unexpectedly derailed, Layla decides to fly to Martha’s Vineyard to do some soul searching. Once there, she quite literally bumps into Chance, a gorgeous and, as she later discovers, amazingly talented (in more ways than one), well established, rock star. Despite his fame, Chance is a down to earth guy. There’s no posturing and arrogance on his behalf, just a cheeky confidence that made him completely endearing, not to mention oh so sexy. Insta love is too trivial a phrase to describe their connection. Yes, their relationship develops quickly but this author does a great job of making sure it doesn’t feel false or forced, or too much too soon. It feels genuine and I absolutely loved it. Despite, or maybe because of, their age difference, these actions of these characters go to show that age really is just a number.
Is it possible to be jealous of a fictional character? By the end of this book, I wanted to be Layla. I wanted to swap places with her and skip off into the breathtaking Menemsha sunset with Chance. If you’re looking for drama, you won’t find it here. What you will find is a beautiful story, well developed characters, amazing steamy and sensual moments and a new swoon-worthy book boyfriend. Oh, and did I tell you I loved it? I’m confident you will too.
Can a fling with the world’s hottest rock star become real love?
I took a few days to search my soul and, in the process, I found him.
He’s charming. Drop dead gorgeous.
In his arms, I’m rediscovering who I am. And who I want to be.
We’re a fleeting moment in time. An erotic madness.
He’s much too young. Too spontaneous.
The opposite of everything that I thought was right for me.
He’s also everything I never knew my heart craved.
Logic screams for me to walk away.
But I can’t.
Is one amazing weekend enough for forever?
Do I dare take this Chance?
